Jazz Ensemble to perform with guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel
The U.Va. Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of trumpeter and composer John D’earth, will give its annual Guest Artist Concert featuring guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel on Feb. 25 in Old Cabell Auditorium.
Guitar legend Pat Metheny calls Rosenwinkel “a thinking guitarist who is working hard to come up with musical answers that meet his own personal criteria of what music is and what it can be.” The Boston Phoenix raves, “Rosenwinkel is the young jazz-guitar god of the moment—and with good reason.”
Rosenwinkel will be performing the previous night, as part of the New Music Ensemble, in a chamber music concert featuring the Kandinsky Trio and a piece by D’earth called “Natural Bridge.” (See “Around Grounds” for ticket information for both events.)
